Clients referred from the court for substance abuse treatment are usually referred because they are being granted a chance to accept rehabilitation in lieu of jail time, other charges, fines, etc. While this is most common with first time offenders, it can occur at any point including while someone is being held in jail. There are different types of facilities that criminal justice clients can be referred to, and this depends on which programs are local to Wells and the type of drug or alcohol the person requires treatment for.
There are treatment programs that work primarily with the courts to treat this explicit type of clientele, and are usually state or federally funded or are available at no cost or very little cost to the client. There are also private addiction rehab programs that can be accepted by the court if there is a specific type of recovery method that the client needs or desires that a different facility can't provide. The client's attorney can present such alternatives to the judge for permission. There are even drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities that operate out of the correctional institutions themselves, where clients are sometimes in a better position for early release or other leniencies when participating in drug and alcohol rehab services while serving their sentence for a drug related offense or a DUI/DWI.
